Original coils. Seems like I can get spark now, but it's very weak. I think I have a lot of carbon build up on the plugs. Perhaps a carb problem causing the too rich of a mixture. I'm assuming...

I'm still sorting. I have 12 volts at the ignition, so I'm assuming that the juice is making its way from battery through diode, relay and so on. Both grounds are cleaned and secure, but now I'm...
